In this class we are going to explore some of the techniques that the author uses to present a sense of place, time and mood from an extract in Charles Dickens’ gothic and glorious novel, ‘Great Expectations.' We will then spend some time analysing the techniques the author uses to create a sense of atmosphere.
The skills students learn in this class can then be applied to other texts across their English studies and give them confidence in answering exam questions.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for all students, especially those in Years 10-11 or S4-S5.
Students will require a laptop with internet connection to view the class. A pen and notepad will also be required during the lesson.
